COVID-19 Action Plan

In line with the federal government’s quarantine plan, we have changed our operations:

  • We have increased sanitising of all surfaces and classrooms
  • We have reduced the number of students in each class to be in line with the government’s requirements
  • Anyone with signs of infection is refused entry into the classroom
  • We are keeping our operations going at a significantly decreased capacity to allow our clients and students to get qualifications to start work during and straight after this crisis passes

We remind all the participants to follow health guidelines:

  • Stay home if you feel unwell or recently visited (14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading
  • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance
  • Follow the directions of your local health authority

We appreciate your support during these difficult times for our country and the world.

Mental Health First Aid Course Information

  • MHFA course is designed and promoted by MHFA Australia – a national not-for-profit health promotion charity.
  • Mental health problems can affect anyone in the community and inaccurate and stigmatising attitudes towards people with mental illness are common.
  • Many people lack the knowledge, skills, and confidence to support a friend, family member or co-worker experiencing a mental health problem, including how to approach someone and start a safe conversation.
  • With everyday stress situations more and more workplaces require a Mental Health officer – a person who can detect a person’s mental problems at the beginning stage and who can help.
  • Encouraging early help-seeking is one way to promote a mentally healthy workplace.
